15 members of the People's Militia surrendered to the government troops under the New People's Army operating in Mountain Province.

Six rebel group supporters surrendered in Natonin town while Bauko town, particularly Barangay Bagnen Proper and Bagnen Oriente, surrendered nine others.

According to the Police Regional Office Cordillera Regional Director, PBGen. R'win Pagkalinawan, the surrender of the 15 People's Militia was the result of better communication and coordination of government troops with the community.

These individuals surrendered three rifles, a grenade, a hand-held radio, and subversive documents.

The rebel returnees are already in the custody of the Mountain Province Police Provincial Office to benefit them from the government's Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program.
